Always learning, never stop, always hungry for knowledge I'm a creative mind that wants to start freelancing as young as...well, I learnt about freelancers. I fell in love with this world just by reading, getting to establish work relationships with people all around the world, isn't that appealing? It's now time for me to notice if it's as pretty as I've read. I'm an IT professional with experience on systems administration and web programming, something around 2 years. Although I consider myself an outstanding programmer, I know there are lessons to learn, and I don't really mind since If I didn't like learning I wouldn't have chosen this career, would I? My main objective right now is to get as much experience possible either in systems administration, a field I love, or web programming, a field in which I have experience and love as well, in a lot of different projects if possible, varying the experience from one to the other. Hope to make business with you reader Manuel M.A.
